The aim of the present study is to investigate the relationship among mindset, locus of control and self esteem of children with specific learning disabilities. The target population of the study is composed of students with specific learning disabilities. Total selected sample were 69.Out of 69, 52 were boys and 17 were girls. The age groups of students ranged from 10 years to 15 years. Children were chosen from 4th std to 10th std. To gather the required data, three scales were used.1) Implicit theory of Intelligence Scale and Implicit Theory of Personality Scale (Carol Dweck, 2000), 2) Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale, 3) Nowicki Strickland Locus of Control Scale for Children. Results showed significant difference between mindset and self esteem among children with specific learning disabilities. Result also showed highly significant difference in locus of control with respect to educational level of the children with specific learning disabilities. Correlation Matrix indicated significant negative relationship among two sets of variables; 1) Significant negative correlation between locus of control and self esteem and 2) Significant negative correlation between fixed mindset and self esteem. Once we are aware of the mindset we hold, we can change it with the help of strategies involved to develop growth mindset. It can further help educators to train children towards growth mindset as fixed mindset could act as a hindrance in the overall development of the child.
